Good news for the Niners — draft gurus are down on Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert. Todd McShay recently dropped Gilbert from the 11th-best prospect to the 24th-best prospect on McShay’s big board.

Trade pick No.30 to the Jaguars for pick No.39 and Jacksonville’s third-rounder in 2015. With pick No.39, the 49ers select JORDAN MATTHEWS, WR, VANDERBILT. The Jaguars trade up […]
